HC Deb 21 May 2002 vol 386 c217W
Annabelle Ewing

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions how many and what percentage of(a) civil service, (b) executive agencies and (c) non-departmental public body jobs under the remit of his Department are located in Scotland; and how many of each have been relocated to Scotland since May 1997. [56306]

Dr. Whitehead

I would refer the hon. Member to the Cabinet Office reports "Civil Service Statistics", published on the Cabinet Office website and also available in the Libraries of both Houses. These reports give a regional breakdown of the total number of staff employed by my Department including agencies.

I am unable to say how many are employed within non-departmental public bodies, as this information is not held centrally by my Department. Since 1997 the centre of the Department has not relocated any jobs to Scotland. Information on relocation is also not held centrally for the agencies and NDPBs.
